Trek Sahara and Challenge 2020 - East Cheshire Hospice

Trek Sahara and Challenge 2020

Scaling Saharan sand dunes in scorching temperatures and camping under the stars.

This Moroccan adventure is the next overseas challenge we’re organising.

The 50 km trek from March 20-27 next year is one of several major events on the our fundraising calendar.

There is something for everyone in a packed events calendar in 2020. Splash Out returns on Sunday, July 6, while a Firewalk is on Friday November 6.

In addition, the Challenge Yourself series lets the public raise funds from their own fundraising initiatives.

Events Assistant Bethan Wade said:  “The events organised by the Hospice are always popular and we’ve drawn up a varied programme to suit all tastes. These community events are a chance for supporters to have a great time and raise money to care for patients.

“In addition, many people do their own thing whether it’s running a 10k or a sponsored bike ride and these Challenge Yourself ideas mean so much to us.” Visit for more details.

A Saharan Trek Information Evening will take place here at the Hospice on Tuesday, March 10, from 6 pm when Different Travel and Bethan will explain more.

The trip costs £1,320, including a £325 registration fee payable at booking to secure a place. Trekkers are also expected to raise a minimum of £995 for the Hospice.

The four-day trek will be followed by two days helping on a community project in Marrakech.
